Survival rates and causes of mortality for black-tailed deer and mule deer in Oregon.

Duration

January 2013 - June 2015

Narrative

Both black-tailed deer and mule deer provide important hunting opportunities and associated economic benefits to the state of Oregon. Perceived declines in both species have highlighted the need for a better understanding of the factors affecting population dynamics of these species in Oregon. Long-term data collection on black-tailed deer in southwestern Oregon and mule deer in eastern Oregon has resulted in extensive telemetry data set for a large number of individuals over 6-7 years. This project seeks to analyze these retrospective data to gain a better understanding of the factors influencing survival, home range size and movements of black-tailed deer in southwestern Oregon and mule deer in eastern Oregon.
